you can always try another internet browser if you want.

If you want to stay with Chrome this does not have that problem:

To transfer your bookmarks from G/Chrome click Comodo icon (top left) > Bookmarks > Import Bookmarks and Settings > From; Chrome > Import. You will need to get your extensions again.

They are add ons to the browser to add specific functionality like one to block ads or tell you of unsafe sites.

Why not just use Tonys suggestion ; comodo.

Or you could try BlackHawk browser both are Chrome based and work with Flash player without problems.

All versions of the Chrome browser have Flash built in, you do not need to uninstall/install flash it is automated in Chrome browsers.

You do not need to uninstall Chrome (google) for installation of other Chrome based browsers it is entirely up to you.

Ok thank you so much for your help much appreciated :) just dont understand chrome so many people have had problems with flash player not working I have never heard of the browsers mentioned ..... so hopefully the 2 browsers will not conflict with each other ( in theory)! and if these 2 suggested sites do not work im back to square one and if so knowing my luck today what would be the best option... sorry again

Adding more browsers won't cause conflict....I've got 2 versions of Firefox and two versions of Chrome and IE9. The only thing that causes conflict is a browser having two or more bits of software of a very similar nature installed in it like flashplayer in Google Chrome.

I say get Comodo Dragon because I know it works without this problem and I think there's a few familiar with it here to help you not that there is much more to learn over G/Chrome.
